Education Leadership

The programme enables individuals to consider the implications of their learning, reading and enquiry for policy and practice in their own professional context. For part-time students employed in practice, there are opportunities to engage in relevant workplace learning. Students will be encouraged to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills which will enable them to reflect critically on current educational leadership practices; in particular their own, and to collect evidence and evaluate change within this context. The course is geared at meeting the specific needs of the individual and their setting.

Entry requirements

Applicants should normally be a current education and training practitioner. Applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum 6.0 in each component) or equivalent.

Assessment methods

You will be assessed by assignments, presentations, portfolios and reports, which will show evidence of achieving the learning outcomes.
